Japan is great, have you found one of the Japan moms groups yet?  Fabulous ladies, very active.

I was stationed in Japan a couple times, as was my husband.  We have several bases there, do you know which one?  She should get a civilian passport, it opens up many leisure travel opportunities, and is invaluable in an emergency when out of country.  The no fee one is useless except when traveling on orders.

Oh, and getting overseas orders is not deployment.  It is just PCS orders.  Deployment is mission specific for a limited time, away from the home base/homeport.

Congratulations and prayers for safety during deployment!

Oh I love the dungarees. Makes me think of Steve McQueen in The Sand Pebbles. They've done away with a lot of the really cool uniforms over the years :-\

Not many wear the woodland, gives me a good guess what he'll be doing.  No need to be paranoid, just aware.

I remember I was very excited to get out of the ancient utilities I wore in boot camp, and into dungarees.  And even though I had to pay for them, the "ice cream" and "Johnny Cash" uniforms were pretty cool compared to the dress suit I was stuck with (and which the women still wear today).  

I miss dungarees.  My dad wore them in WWII, looked nearly the same as the ones I wore!
